Whether you’re driving in your neighborhood or on a busy highway, making responsible choices in work zones is essential. National Work Zone Awareness Week (April 3-7) is an annual opportunity for motorists to evaluate their driving habits just in time for the busy spring and summer construction season.

National Work Zone Awareness Week is coordinated and sponsored by the American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
